Fluid coupling

Ever-power Liquid couplings are fixed fill mechanical soft start devices which use hydrokinetic energy to transmit torque through a system of impellers. The insight impeller functions identical to a centrifugal pump and hydraulic turbine. When the insight drive movements, it transmits kinetic energy to the essential oil which is distributed in the casing and transmits torque by engaging the outer impeller. The Dodge Liquid coupling enables the driver to begin under “no load”, producing a smooth start up and reduced amount of amp draw from the engine. Since there is absolutely no physical connection in the casing, the Dodge Fluid coupling has built-in overload protection and inherent torsional vibration absorption. Additionally, load balancing is possible with the use of asynchronous motors, instead of custom motors, because the Fluid couplings automatically modify to load speed.

The specified working conditions of a Ever-power coupling could be monitored by a noncontact and maintenance-free Electronic Operating Control (EOC) system. A thermal operation control device and fusible security plugs in the coupling casing provide additional protection against overheating and overload pressure.
